Thinking Ahead

It's the only reason I can imagine for the fact that I never seem to buy what is at the top of the grocery list. And since I always start my grocery list with the items I forgot on the last trip, there are some things I will never own again.

Shuck, Stephen, just scrap the list and walk up and down the aisles and buy whatever you fancy.

The Facts Most Astounding

b2ap3_thumbnail_Evansville.jpg 

"If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal — that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself. The greatest gains and values are farthest from being appreciated. We easily come to doubt if they exist. We soon forget them. They are the highest reality. Perhaps the facts most astounding and most real are never communicated by man to man. The true harvest of my daily life is somewhat as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star-dust caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched."

 

Henry David Thoreau

I take some comfort that he spent two years at Walden and eight years writing it.

I read this when I first got up this morning and it felt perfect. 'Walden' is one of my favourite books.
